Organisational Review of Solidaridad
Norad’s Civil Society Department manages grants of close to NOK 3 billion per year from different schemes. The organisational reviews form an integral part of the Civil Society Department’s grant management process and are usually commissioned in connection with the assessment of new applications. The reviews serve an important control function and should enable Norad to make informed decisions on support and identify important dialogue and follow-up issues.
This organisational review aimed at assessing four organisational elements of Solidaridad: organisational structure and governance, and sustainability (ability to be), money-flow analysis and cost efficiency, financial and administrative management and auditing process (ability to organize); results management and civil society strengthening (ability to do); and partnership responsiveness (ability to relate).
